Day 2: Childless

But Abram said, “Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus? You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will be my heir.” — Genesis 15:2-3

Read the whole passage in Genesis 15:1-3

Faced with old age and an old promise, Abram was still without children. God had promised to make Abram’s descendants great. But still, the childless Abram waited. Frustrated and impatience, he confronted God, reminding him of his promise. Too often we hid our needs or emotions from God. Angry about losing a job, frustrated with a family member, hurt by a friend, worried about money, we come to God with if-it’s-your-wills and if-you-pleases. Nothing is hidden from God. He knows our pain, our anger, and our frustrations. But he wants us to plainly and honestly talk with him about our needs and our troubles without hidden meanings or veiled intent.

Talk with God

God, this is what is going on in my life and this is what I need…..

Live it. How will you live more second today?
Tell it. How will you share what you have learned?
